49-Year-Old Twilight Fan And Her New Tattoo

twilight-tattoo-womanHey kids!

Do you like stories? Do you like stories about vampires and werewolves and undying, ridiculously exaggerated passionate, true love and obsession that will suck the breath RIGHT OUT OF YOU!? Are you the practically Bella Swan’s BFF? Are you and Edward Cullen meant to be together 4ever? ARE YOU TWILIGHT’S BIGGEST FAN?!

No. This lady is.

Cathy Ward, a 49-year-old English woman clearly a few chapters short of a book, has acquired her first tattoo – a full back piece homage to Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series, of which I am beginning to suspect I will never be free, entirely.

The enormous work depicts a forest, a romantic embrace between Edward and Bella, a scene of Edward, Bella and Jacob looking petulant and tortured, and another solo piece of Edward looking fang-y and mad, as well as some floral, symbolic and decorative bits to er…flesh it out.

But she’s not done yet! The enthusiastic Ms. Ward plans to add more – including a portrait of Edward Cullen on her stomach, before her 50th birthday.

Now back away slowly and go to college.

  1. Hey there! Have you read _The Silver Kiss_? By Annette Curtis Klause, a librarian in Maryland. I read this years ago, and dare I say, I think it is … ok, I won’t say better. I will just say that the writing is clear and intelligent and the story is not only believeable it is soulful, the theme of life vs. death does not clang CLICHE! It rings like a mediation bell, soft and true. I highly recommend this book. This story is really, very good. I would love to see it make a resurgance…It first came out in 1990. Her book, _Blood and Chocolate_ is fantastic too–much more visceral, less “heady.” Both are sensuous. B&C is quite sexy. Please read. Happy 2011!
